Our second cricket fixture of the season takes place this Sunday, when we travel to East Sussex to take on Rye Cricket Club, as part of their 260th anniversary celebrations.
Sussex County Cricket Club have generously donated a kit for Rye to wear for this unique match.
Sussex head of cricket development Tim Shutt told the ECB website: “We're delighted to be able to help clubs like Rye who are rightfully celebrating a magnificent achievement.
“It is extremely important that the support from the Sussex Cricket Board reaches all our clubs regardless of their geography. Furthermore, with last year's bad weather, local clubs suffered financially and Sussex Cricket is very aware of the vital role clubs play in the success of both the recreational and professional game.”
You can see a full scorecard and follow all our fixtures live this summer, thanks to our partnership with CricHQ.
Their superb app allows you to not only follow the scores as they happen, but you can also see where every individual ball has been bowled and where it ends up.
You can also compare batting averages, bowling figures and man-of-the-match awards.

Lashings find treasure on Jamaican beach
IT'S been an arduous week for Lashings All-Stars chairman David Folb, as he's been forced to abandon the luxury of life in the UK to spend a week in Jamaica - and keep West Indies Legend Gordon Greenidge company at the same time.
The duo have been in Jamaica to finalise a major new sponsorship deal with Jakes' Treasure Beach and the Breds Sports Park & Academy. While on the island Gordon has been coaching some of the emerging talent in the area and Folb has been having discussions with the Ministry of Tourism. He also bumped into Courtney Walsh!
The Lashings All-Stars next football match is with Bashley FC on Thursday May 2 (kick-off 6pm) and we're delighted to announce two very special guests will be attending.
Gordon, one of the most graceful, elegant and brutal batsman ever to play the game of cricket will be a guest of honour at the match and we'll also be joined by Henry Blofeld - the voice of the BBC's Test Match Special and a loyal Norwich City supporter.
"I'm coming down to see if the Lashings footballers are as good at sledging as the Lashings cricketers!" Blowers said.
The full squad for the Bashley match will be announced shortly. Visit www.lashingsallstars.co.uk for all the latest team news.
Our first cricket match of the 2013 season is at South Wilts on May 12.

Seven-goal thriller ends
an era in the New Forest
LASHINGS shaded a seven-goal thriller at Bashley on Thursday night, fighting back from a goal down to take a 4-1 lead in the second half, then withstanding a late rally from Bashley, who scored twice in the dying minutes.
A "worldy" from Clayton Blackmore equalised an early Bashley goal and Luther Blissett struck twice in the second half, with Nigel Winterburn also bursting through the midfield to score with his fabled right foot!
It was the end of an era for Bashley, who were playing the final ever senior game at Bashley Road before they merge with New Milton next season.
A full report will appear later.
Nigel Winterburn scored - with his right foot! - for Lashings at Bashley on Thursday
The All-Stars squad was:
Manager: Tony Cottee
Goalkeeper: David Smith
(former England wicket-keeper)
Defenders: Des Walker

Lashings Suffolk-ated by Haverhill's hoppers
The All-Stars suffered a 6-4 defeat at Haverhill on Thursday night, with Perry Groves' side struggling to keep pace with a youthful Suffolk side.
Eager for revenge after six consecutive defeats to Lashings on the cricket field, Haverhill assembled a side so youthful Groves, covering for manager Tony Cottee, was moved to remark that they should perhaps have been at home doing their homework.
The home side raced into a 4-0 lead before the All-Stars decided it was time to take a stand. Matt Holland and freestyler Aaron Cato pulled two goals back but Haverhill added a fifth before the break.
Luther Blissett and Clayton Blackmore dragged the All-Stars back to within a goal but with five minutes left Haverhill scored the final goal of the game.
There's a brief report of the match on the Haverhill Echo website with more to follow.
Our next cricket match is at Rye on Sunday May 29.
